Consumer Law and Legal Definition

Consumers are defined as individuals who purchase, use, maintain, and dispose of products and services. Consumers are users of the final product. Consumer is a member of that broad class of people who are affected by pricing policies, financing practices, quality of goods and services, credit reporting, debt collection, and other trade practices for which the state and federal consumer protection laws are enacted.
